Carlo Scarpa designed this masterpiece of a table in 1974, as a successor to the Doge, which is included in the collection known as Ultrarazionale. While citing some of the same material characteristics as its predecessor, the base of the Sarpi is up-ended compared to the Doge, while the entire piece is smaller so it can fit into smaller spaces. In 2009, Tobia Scarpa complemented the original octagonal table-top, which was later augmented by rectangular, square and round versions, with an elongated circle option, known as the Elistella, the shape cleverly based on Bernoulli’s Spiral(Spira Mirabilis).
